    Not sure if it falls in this category, but how do you start designing soccer shoes?

    Go to a respected school with a strong focus on car design, fail at that and then go into footwear design. That's what most footwear designers do lol.

    Check out www.linkedin.com and see where designers went to school and what sort of career path they have followed.

    I have read that alot of footwear and shoe designers just fall into it by drawing concepts and getting found somehow?

    I forget but I think a few did design courses also.

    I know one great footwear designer studied architecture at University? So anything is possible. He now works for Nike; Tinker Hatfield is his name.
